Dhaulagiri Trek

Dhaulagiri Trek reckoned as the most far-off place in Nepal is loaded with several gigantic Himalayan peaks, high passes, hidden valleys, and far-reaching vistas. This Trans-Himalayan area also sets Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167 m) which is divided from the Annapurna area by the deepest gorge in the world- Kali Gandaki, and also includes several fifteen mountains having an altitude of more than 7000m. 

We begin our Dhaulagiri trek right from Beni; we will pass through pleasant villages. After around 8 days of walking, passing an unchanging countryside, with many charming villages, we get to Dhaulagiri Base camp and set up ourselves for the core of our way that is the traversing of the French Pass lying at an altitude of 5360m. This is a tough route but technically undemanding which lies close to the north inclined of Dhaulagiri (8167m) and the peak views on our way up and drop are simply amazing. We have a day rest to travel around the extraordinary ‘Hidden Valley' before getting across the Dhampus Pass which is another significant part of the trek. And we will descend down to Marpha where we assemble with the main track of Kali Gandaki or Annapurna circuit. After that, we will also trek all the way through Kali Gandaki valley to Muktinath, the entryway to Mustang. 

Dhaulagiri trekking is fairly demanding but if trekkers are questing to experience adventure with natural settings and off the beaten trails then this is the perfect trekking destination. During the trek, you will notice the vast veiled lands of Dolpo lying to the north, and to the west side, you will see Nepal's far-western hills. The region is also counted as Nepal's one of the most challenging treks and goes from side to side with the glacier, high passes like French pass (5360m), it can be trodden by experienced trekkers only.
